EPA plan won’t change price advantage of gas over coal FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享The New York Times:America’s ailing coal industry was buoyed on Tuesday when the Environmental Protection Agency unveiled a proposal to relax pollution regulations on coal-fired power plants. President Trump traveled to West Virginia to tout the planned measure, telling supporters, “We’re putting our great coal miners back to work.”Yet the reality on the ground for the nation’s coal industry remains bleak. Even the Trump administration’s own numbers suggest that its latest proposal won’t reverse the sharp decline of coal power, which has been crushed by competition from cheaper natural gas and renewable energy over the past decade.More than 200 coal plants have shut down since 2010, and another 40 plants have announced they will close in the years ahead, with virtually no new coal plants being built today.At best, if finalized, the E.P.A.’s newest rollback could help a small number of those endangered coal plants stave off retirement for a bit longer, albeit at the expense of increased air pollution. But even in that scenario, the agency’s own analysis showed, coal power would still decline by 20 percent between now and 2030 and coal mining would drop by one-third. “This is like throwing a few snowballs into a blizzard,” said Tom Sanzillo, director of finance at the Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis. “You might see a plant here or a plant there that benefits from the new rules. But we’re talking about very minor changes compared with the significant gap between the cost of coal and the cost of natural gas.”More: Trump’s New Pollution Rules Still Won’t Save the Coal Industry
Carole and Barry were noted philanthropists who donated millions of dollars to various causes in the community, including City of Hope, the Whitney Museum, New York Presbyterian Hospital, Ben-Gurion University and Florida Atlantic University.At FAU, the Carole and Barry Kaye Performing Arts Auditorium, the Carole and Barry Kaye Great Hall in FAU’s alumni center and the Barry Kaye Hall in the College of Business are named in their honor. Barry Kaye was awarded an honorary doctorate degree from FAU in 2005.Because of the coronavirus pandemic, a memorial service for the Kayes was held Tuesday via Zoom. “We appreciate the generosity of Carole and Barry Kaye and their family to the College of Business,” said Daniel Gropper, Ph.D., dean of FAU’s College of Business. “Prior Business Dean Dennis Coates and Barry Kaye were good friends, and I have enjoyed getting to know Howard Kaye and his family. Their support means a great deal. Many of our business faculty have their offices in Barry Kaye Hall, and our students take classes there as well. It is sad that the COVID-19 virus has taken Carole and Barry Kaye and so many others. But as I listened to the memorial ceremony, I could not help but admire their love for each other over a 58-year marriage, as well as their devotion to family and friends. They have left a great family legacy, and they certainly lived a full, adventurous and remarkable life together.”The couple is survived by their children, Howard and his wife, Andrea; Alan and his wife, Michelle; and Fern Tessler and her husband, Lenard; Barry’s son, Rory; 15 grandchildren; and three great grandchildren. The Kayes were predeceased by Barry’s son, Ronald. The coronavirus has claimed the lives of a beloved Boca Raton couple known for their philanthropy. Barry Kaye, a longtime Boca Raton resident died April 21 from complications due to COVID-19. He was 91. Carole Kaye, his wife of 58 years, also succumbed to the disease and passed away five days later. She was 87.Barry and Carole Kaye, prominent Boca Raton philanthropists and benefactors, passed away from COVID-19. https://t.co/JMjAXngGH3— Boca Raton Magazine (@bocamag) May 1, 2020

“We always wanted to see it, but I would’ve preferred it back then. Tyson is a hell of a specimen still. He’s still a problem to deal with. But at the same time, life is life, you only live once. You want to know what it’s like, you go in there and see.”Roy Jones Jr. speaking with Dr. Beau Hightower about getting back into the ring against Mike Tyson. pic.twitter.com/VXsuLs716Y— Wally Sparks (@djwallysparks) July 23, 2020Andy Foster, the executive director of the California State Athletic Commission, told Yahoo Sports’ Kevin Iole that Tyson and Jones won’t be wearing headgear but will be using larger than normal gloves.”This isn’t a situation where they’re going out there to try to take each other’s heads off,” Foster said. “They’re just going to be in there moving around the ring and letting fans see these legends.” “Iron Mike” is heading back inside the ring.Mike Tyson will make his boxing comeback in an eight-round exhibition against Roy Jones Jr. on Sept. 12. The bout will take place in California, and it will be available to watch via pay-per-view and the social media platform, Triller, which will also release a 10-part documentary series leading up to the fight.

While he conceded the matchup would have been more entertaining with both fighters slugging it out in their primes, he did seem open to the idea.”I’ve been trying to enjoy retirement, but people don’t seem to want to let me retire,” Jones said. “They keep calling me, telling me that Mike wants to come back, and you’d be a great opponent for Mike. I’m like, ‘Man, come on, bro. Y’all still want to see these hands go?’ Y’all know I don’t know how to say no. So don’t make me keep going. … I. AM. BACK. #legendsonlyleague.
